Keep Your Eye On The Big Picture

When the dots won't joint together
And the planets don't always align
When circumstance lets you down
Keep your eye on the big picture.

When people disappoint
And there's a gap between actions and words
When weakness creeps above the hidden surface
Keep your eye on the big picture.

When the black dog starts to bark
And the birds peck holes in your thoughts
When the snake comes knocking your door
Keep your eye on the big picture.

When tribulation hooks onto your smile
And persecution stares down your position
Then misunderstanding dissolves your confidence
Keep your eye in the big picture.

When a cloud covers you with a black shadow
Until the rain erodes away resistance
As the torrent carries you away
Keep your eye on the big picture.

When the critic blurs your focus
And they tell you what others are saying
And the pinprick looks like a bullet hole
Keep your eye on the big picture.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
